7:04am
another says two have died at this. one agent in turkey say these were turkey security employees. this appears to be a side security gate to tell bacy. the staff in the embassy, we're told, are in a lockdown now, not responding to phone calls at this stage. the embassy in turkey, by the way, with a lot of u.s. embassies under the threat in the islamic world, this embassy does not come under one of those to be a prime security threat. the explosion appears to have been sizeable enough to damage the security gate at the side of the embassy but no damage from the initial picture, anyway, to the embassy proper. charlie, norah? >> mark, thank you. here in new orleans we're two days away from super bowl xlvii. 150,000 people are expected here this weekend, and kicking off the party yesterday, beyonce. she finally answered critics of her last performance as she gets ready for another worldwide

7:07am
i've never been to a super bowl. this is the best, and my team is here. >> reporter: the super bowl is expected to bring half billion dollars to new orleans and we should say the weather has improved dramatically since we've been here. of course, the game remains indoors. charlie and norah? >> thank you. and still ahead on "cbs this morning" we'll talk with jack and jackie harbaugh, the parents of both super bowl coaches. mvp eli manning will also be here. and we'll preview the big game with jim nantz and phil simms of cbs sports. and we're also updating an developing story. a kindergarten student remains a hostage in an underground bunker this morning. we have the latest on this disturbing drama now in its third day. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. while there's no indication that the boy has been physically harmed, we now hear he has been crying out for his parents.
7:08am
his mother has been described as hanging on by a thread as the standoff continues. hostage negotiators have been communicating with suspect jimmy l lee dikes through a 4-inch pvc pipe down into the bunker where he remains with his 5-year-old captive. >> negotiators continue to communicate with the suspect and there's no reason to believe the child has been harmed. >> reporter: the two remain under ground since tuesday when dikes stormed onto the bus and shot the bus driver, killing him. he held the gunman at the front of the bus while 21 children escaped out the back. the man grabbed two but one managed to break free. he kidnapped the 5-year-old boy nathan. police were able to deliver food and medication to the boy who has special needs. he's also been able to watch
7:09am
television. reportedly dikes has asked for nothing while refusing to release the child. the fbi stays in contact with dikes during the day and let him sleep during the night. >> why the shooter does not release the young boy to his family is hard for me to understand. >> reporter: dikes is no stranger to law enforcement. six months ago he reportedly beat ronda wilbur's dog to death and terrorized neighbors. >> he'd come out screaming is and cussing, i thinks you can't say on air. >> reporter: he once invited him to come see the bunker. >> he's always seemed like a weird person. that's the way he is. >> reporter: a warrant issued last month for pointing a gun at his truck. >> by the time i told him to calm down, mr. dikes ran to his van and pulled out a pistol.
7:10am
i floored the truck and i got away from there. >> this guy is an accident waiting to happen. this guy is going to snap. >> reporter: local officials say dikes has been known to spend up to eight days in that underground bunker, and he may have supplies to last even longer. charlie and norah? >> manuel bojorquez, thank you. an alaskan airlines jet made an emergency landing last night after the pilot passed out. flight 472 was en route from los angeles to seattle. the jet was over oregon when the pilot lost consciousness. the co-pilot declared an emergency and landed the plane in portland. a doctor on board treated the pilot who remained unconscious. there were 116 passengers and five crew members on the boeing 737. ed koch died. he served three terms and rescued the city from near financial ruins. gained a national reputation for
7:11am
his out spoken style and trademark question, how am i doing. koch died of congestive heart failure. he was 88 years old. charlie, you knew him well. >> i did. he was a true new yorker, a man who loved his city. until i saw him a few months ago, a man of the city and an incredible mayor. >> a documentary coming up soon. and now white house officials tell cbs's major garrett they're disappointed at yesterday's confirmation hearing but they believe the former nebraska senator will be confirmed if only by a slim margin. one of the most damages remarks came from john mccain over the iraq troop surge. >> would you please answer the question. were you correct or incorrect when you said the surge would be the most dangerous foreign
7:12am
policy blunder in this country since vietnam. were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference to -- >> are you answering the question, senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. i want you to answer whether you were right or wrong and then u you're free to elaborate. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer to a lot of things. >> let the record show he refuses to answer that question. >> with us now is washington chief correspondent and host of "face the nation," bob schieffer. bob, good morning. i think they were disappointed. they usually press their nominees. >> well, thankfully -- and let's not forget, chuck hagel was the co-chairman of john mccain's presidential campaign when john mccain ran the first time. this is stunning. but i agree with you.
7:13am
i mean generally on something like this what will happen, the white house will come back and stoutly defend the guy and say they're being unfair to him, and they started -- they didn't say it on the record but they started leaking all these reports they were disappointed and all that. to me that's almost -- fellows if you've got a hard vote coming up here, we understand. >> how serious is the damage and does it derail the nomination? >> well, either it does or the white house is absolutely certain of every democratic vote in the senate. >> right. >> if it is, there are more democrats there than the republicans and they think he'll get confirmed by a narrow margin. but i find this like you, norah. i've never heard or seen the white house react quite the way they did to this. >> but everyone expected hagel would get a tough grill because of past comments he made about the iraq surge, questions he made about iran and questions he
7:14am
made about the quote/unquote jewish lobby. >> for sure they knew this was coming. the questions, if you read "the washington post" or "the new york times" or the wire services, you knew these were the questions they were going to get, and he did not seem able to really answer them. and i think -- i think this nomination may be in trouble. you know, i was there when sam nunn took on john tower who was nominated to be secretary of defense. and, of course, his number one defender, john's defender was john mccain back in those days. >> but this is part of how they feel about the iraq war too. >> and i've asked john mccain, i mean, what is this deal with you and chuck hagel. he says it's policy. it's all policy. so that's what he says. >> and, bob, nice bead this morning. i like that. you're always in the spirit. and who have you got coming up
7:15am
on sunday? >> we're going to have roger goodell, the commissioner of football. and i think it ought to be -- with all the questions about -- and especially with, you know, barack obama saying he'd have questions about whether his son would play if he had a son. so plenty to talk to the commissioner about. it's great to be in new orleans, let me also say that. >> great to have you. >> your kind of town. >> thank you, bob. at the senate hearing hagel addressed the computer hacking. two major newspapers say chinese hackers infiltrated their computers for the last several months. meanwhile pentagon officials are looking at a big change in how they fight tearer. bob orr is in washington. >> those attacks are part of the broader campaign by foreign cyber spies to hack computer systems inside the u.s. officials warn more are inevitable as cyber attacks are ga
7:16am
greater now. to government sponsored hackers inside china. chinese officials denied the allegations calling them not professional and groundless but both papers say there is evidence hackers stole reporters' passwords and attempted to monitor governments of the papers. state-sponsored spies, mostly from china, every day infiltrate a broad spectrum of government and business networks insight the u.s. >> cyber terrorism presents one of the biggest threats. >> secretary of defense nominee chuck hagel warned the attacks could be crippling. >> it's an insidious quiet kind of a threat that we've never quite seen before. it can paralyze a nation in a second. >> for now the damage is economic. cyber spies and criminal hackers

♪ welcome back to "cbs this morning" from super bowl park at jackson square in new orleans. we have new information on this morning's bombing outside the united states embassy in angora, turkey. at least one guard was killed in that suicide attack. cbs correspondent john miller is with us. what do we know and what are the concerns? >> the concerns are this will be the first in the series. not that you have any intelligence that says that but when you look at the pattern of
7:31am
these things, depending on where they're driven from, that's sometimes how they go. and then it brings us to the where is it driven from. obviously from an intelligence standpoint it's way to early to put an attribute on it. leading up to this, it was fairly low, but let's talk about where they'll look for attribution. one piece will be al qaeda. they've had a presence in turkey and because of everything going on in mali and the fact that u.s. air resources are being used to move french troops and forces in there, that's one point. another that is perhaps more interesting and dangerous is iran has a giant e intelligence operation going on in turkey, ins he b ins he ins he bow la. iran in terms of retribution
7:32am
would stake israel and iran together. >> we want to talk about security closer to home. john, i know you've been given some unprecedented access to keeping the super bowl safe, a story you'll only see on "cbs this morning." >> from snipers to canines, this is the operations where more than 70 operations come together with one goal, a close game with no surprises. by land, air, and sea, an alphabet soup of local state s and federal agency work around the clock to make sure nothing happens off the field on sunday. >> we've got simply 70 agencies participating in covering this event. >> they're looking at classified intelligence updates on
7:33am
terrorism overseas but also tracking every incident in the area. but if something happened, that log would start to tick down minute by minute information about a car bomb, a bomb threat, hostage, whatever it was. >> absolutely. the capability os thereafter is. can go into incredible detail. that will be going off like a ticker tame. >> in a downtown hotel is superintendent gave a talk to what the cops may see on the street. but later in an old cotton warehouse we saw the hidden operations of teams and tools that surface public we hope never will see. >> i assume if this is pulled out something bad will happen. >> something bad will not happen because we're going to assume we're safe. but if we have to this protects the officer s and people that
7:34am
through. >> as part of the plan, 1 2rkz 00 officers will be work 1g 2-hour shifts. >> you cover everything from soup to nuts, air, water, ground, sub terrain, employment patterns. >> this is nfl control. >> inside the stadium, jeff miller, head of nfl security, is focused protecting the players and fans. >> what we try to do is do what we believe is necessary and appropriate but do it in a way that the fans understand what we're doing and don't suffer because of it. >> from this command post they track everything coming into the super dome. 4,000 private security guards have been hired and all cargo is inspected by customs and border patrol agents before turning the venue. >> there's so many different steps from walks through ten venues through walks through x-ray machines and canines.
7:35am
>> just before the big day, teams of homeland security agents engaged in tactile exercises for any imaginable scenario. as i walked toward the 50-yard line with secretary of homeland security janet napolitano, i asked about the current threat picture. >> we need to constantly challenge ourselves with the what if this, what if that, what if there were someone who managed to get an ied in here as small a likelihood that is, what if someone had a toxic substance. those are scenarios we think about, plan for. >> or there's that 9/11 scenario, a terrorist attack using aircraft. we went up with customs and border protection agents who will be enforcing a 30-mile temporary flight restriction zone or tfr around the stadium on sunday. >> we're kind of at the bull's
7:36am
eye of the temporary flight restriction area, right? >> we are, we are. we want to do our best to make surer has a safe and fun experience and nobody ever knows we're even here. >> that kind of attack from a plane would be unprecedented, first. is there time to shoot it down? >> that's an excellent question. you know, we have not had a super bowl where there hasn't been a violation of the restricted flight area, and usually it's somebody who got lost or didn't know but that's why they have that 30-mile tfr here because there's a ten-mile doughnut in the middle that's the critical zone. have a 30-mile zone to figure out who is this, are they lost, can we turn them around and escort them down and see what they're doing. if you get to the ten-mile zone and you ignore the signals and radio chatter, then those f-15s right across the river and up on patrol may do what they have to do and they've never gone there
7:37am
before. >> who makes that decision? >> that's a tough call. i always wondered. does that end on the colonel level, general level or white house level and nobody's saying. >> what about inside the dome, the security? >> there is -- what you'll see, you'll see. you won't see the hit teams. they're moving in three-man teams through the crowd ready to if they come on a package, it's a bomb, a dispersal device, they can do a hand entry and do it right there. it's not the kind of thing, norah, where you say, first we're going to evacuate the spo do super dome. then you have pretty exotic things, fbi, snierps. i'm not going to tell you if they're in the air conditioning vents but they're up there. i'm not going to tell you where. they're ready. 180 years ago the first

8:33am
this. they both have a great momentum. that's why they're in the super bowl. their teams are healthy. we talked to john harbaugh and jim too. they love their teams. we love our teams. the teams got them to this chance to win a super bowl. to go down in history, that's what it's about. >> how do you compare the styles of the two coaches, jim and john? >> this is something we've already decided while we're calling the game coach harbaugh. not only our audience and director as well. so we're going to call them coach jim and john during the course of the broadcast zbhood luck with that. >> john's the older brother. he has like a cinder personality, very polished. john's a little more hard-edged. i don't know. it's one of the greatest stories i've ever seen. two brothers -- >> what are the odds? so much added to this super bowl. >> it really has. >> there's always great stories
8:34am
in a super bowl, you know. and this time, of course, it's the coaches. i think they're both a lot alike. you met the dad. the dad and both of the boys are the same. jim is still one of the players. he's out there on the field coaching everybody, in the middle of it, getting dirty and all of that. job's a little more, maybe, back, the president of the club, a little different. >> we just had the harbaugh parents there. you know them. ire just a fabulous couple and obviously three wonderful children but they say they don't want to be on camera during the game and distract from the players but i'm sure you guys would like to see them, a shot of them, right? >> i think we'll find them. you're going to have to reference them a couple of times during the game. i understand this has got to be really hard for them. they've been really good sports this week coming on the show, referencing them, doing a press conference. they hopscotched around the country as mr. harbaugh was changing job rs, a coaching
8:35am
profession. >> what did he say how many times he moved. >> 11 times. >> in this case one brother's going to have the ultimate prize. the other brother is going to have the hardest loss of his life. >> what do you say to the quarterbacks in terms of pressure? >> it's interesting. the nerves will be there, of course, when the game starts. the big thing is talk yourself into not being nervous or get hit early. believe it or not -- that sounds kind of funny. how many times when you talk to a quarterback do you ask them when they stopped being nervous. they say when they got hit. that's up to the coaches to make sure their quarterbacks get into the game quickly so their nerves are not a part of it. >> all right. phil simms and jim nantz. glad to see you. >> do you have any special thing you do before the game?

8:39am
buoyant flag. >> reporter: many tv shows have been shot in san francisco including "full house." >> reporter: "homicide" and "the wire." >> reporter: tell that to dirty harry. he didn't race through the streets. he cleaned them up. go ahead, mo. make my day. >> reporter: i'll admit it. it can get a little chilly here. it's nice to live in a city where it getting chilly. >> reporter: mark twain is widely believed to have said the cold evidence summer was the summer spinlt in san francisco. there's no proof he said that but he's one of the great writers who found instir rags here. >> reporter: edgar allan poe is so beloved by football they named their football team after one of his poems. that's pride. >> reporter: they're two great cities but clearly new orleans
8:40am
is the best football city and that's why we're hosting this year's super bowl. who dat. >> mo. >> reporter: yes, i think it's pretty clear testified is there that baltimore is the superior city. >> before i go, where can i get a coat like that? >>. >> reporter: in baltimore. actually bob schieffer said he's missing hiss awning from his summerhouse i would pay money to see you in a coat like that. >> there's more on the web if you want to watch cal ripken jr. teach me how to eat a crab live and john and i have more comparisons. >> you say you enjoy the game of football. do you still feel the same way? you adore it? >> i love football. i do. it's been great. it's terrific. i'll be at every super bowl from now on. >> thank you, mo. when you think football neil
